The president of Japanese automaker Toyota says his company will invest 10 billion dollars in the United States over the next 5 years.
Akio Toyoda revealed the plan on Monday at an auto show in the US city of Detroit.
US President-elect Donald Trump had criticized the giant Japanese firm for its moves to build a plant in Mexico.
Toyoda stressed his company’s contribution to the US economy. He said the firm has its largest plant in the US and employs 136,000 people across the country.
